Varisia

Varisia is a region of conf lict, a strip of
frontier laid against the land of barbarians and giants
to the northeast—the Storval Rise. Although no central
government controls Varisia, three city-states have
emerged, each of which could some day soon claim
control over the region. The eldest and largest of these is
Korvosa, a city of Chelish loyalists ruled by a monarchy but
cleaving close to Cheliax in a bid to be reabsorbed into the
empire. The second largest city in Varisia, cosmopolitan
Magnimar, f lourishes while Korvosa, at best, stagnates
in its thick traditional values. And further to the north
lies Riddleport, a solution to those who find law of any
sort oppressive—Riddleport serves as safe harbor for
mercenaries, thieves, bandits, and pirates of all cuts.
